my father retired and now lives in a mountain village in northern Italy since he loves hiking . He has a house with a small garden there and really loves big dogs. He wants to take one but always delays, so I was thinking about getting him one for his birthday. My first choice would be a Bloodhound since it looks cool and funny to me but I don't know much about their temper. They are famous for their sniffing skills right? Temperature where he lives is obviously cold during winter but fresh during summer.
Do you think a Bloodhound could be a good choice? Any other breed suitable for mountain life?
>>
bloodhounds are a pain in the ass for hiking because they're stupid hounds and they just want to follow their nose everywhere

they are also greasy and smelly

you're father is retired and active so he might to well with a more intelligent, athletic herding breed

mongrels are great too
>>
Get him a mongrel OP. Serious.

Burmese Mountain Dog sounds like a good match for him. Don't get a Bloodhound.

I think it's Bernese

this
they are sweethearts as dogs but their very developed nose makes them hard to train.

Get him a large breed that doesn't shed:

Airedale Terrier
Bouvier Des Flandres
Giant Schnauzer
Standard Poodle
Irish Water Spaniel
Komondor
Saluki
Standard Poodle
Wirehaired Pointing Griffon

Yes, the Saluki is of desert origin.
Poodles are great in the snow, and are the second most intelligent breed after Border Collies. Very friendly and they don't drool like bloodhounds.

My dad lives with his boyfriend (not a joke) in a similar climate, they ended up getting a Rottweiler and I'm p. sure they love it more than me. That doggo is a sweetheart, and apparently scared off two adolescent wolves and made friends with a squirrel family. It's like a gay fairy tale up in North Dakota
